WSUS Admins:

 

On April 15th the Office Genuine Advantage (OGA) notifications update (KB949810) was inadvertently published to WSUS servers for approximately twenty-four hours. This update was intended for Microsoft Office users in the pilot countries of Italy, Spain, Turkey and Chile, but because of WSUS publication, it became available to WSUS managed clients inside and outside of these intended countries.  This update has since been removed from WSUS.  For servers which synchronized the OGA update package, the package required a EULA acceptance before it could be made available to WSUS managed clients, via either manual approval, or auto-approval rules.   OGA notifications are designed to alert customers who are using non-genuine software, and are thus more vulnerable to activation exploits and the risks of counterfeit. As such, this update was marked critical for WSUS.

 

 

We are available to offer full assistance if you have problems or questions related to this issue, via your regular support channels.  Customers who want to learn more about OGA notifications can reference the online KB Article.  Customers who require support should submit  a Technical Support Request for Microsoft Genuine Advantage Issues.

  • Please fix this crap once and for all. Microsoft does not seem to be learning from past mistakes

  • I have a problem installing the WSUS 2.0 or 3.0 on my server.  It failed during the install, and now says there is a problem with an SQL instance. Who can I contact to get this fixed? Thank you.
